August BRAVA Night Out

AUGUST 23 | CELEBRATE THE ENDLESS WEEKEND
Our August 2018 BRAVA NIGHT OUT was a memorable evening at Patio Pleasures in Sun Prairie. Guests enjoyed an assortment of snacks, drinks and special discounts throughout the night as co-owners and sisters Adrianne DeSelle and Rene Huston provided expert tips on how to create or revamp an outdoor space meant for cozy contentment and enjoying life’s special moments. Both ladies were excellent resources for the wide variety of home decor, equipment and potential upgrades which could potentially “spruce up” a backyard such as swimming pools, hot tubs, grills, patio furniture, fire tables, casual living accessories and outdoor lighting. The event was entertaining—and educational—indeed!
